Vice President Joe Biden is slated to headline a Newport fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee on August 22.
The setting for the event is the home of Bill and Alison Vareika. (The Vareikas' son, Christian, is leaving his post as deputy communications director for Governor Lincoln Chafee, who became a Democrat earlier this year, in August to attend law school.)
Contribution levels range from $1,000 for the general reception to $2,500 for photo and reception, and $5000 for "host clutch" and reception.
In related news, the Republican National Committee has a meeting set for Boston in August.
